Cub Sport - Always Got The Love

With over 200 million streams and praise from the likes of The Guardian, BBC Radio 1 and Rolling Stone, Australian pop sensations Cub Sport return with «Always Got The Love» – their first dose of new music since 2020.

Over the course of four spellbinding albums, Cub Sport wrote songs that turned unease and anxiety into something ecstatic. But does that always have to be the way? On their new release «Always Got The Love», the venerated Brisbane four-piece find power in pure joy. Powered by an effervescent 2-step beat and frontman Tim Nelson’s radiant falsetto, it’s a beatific entrance into a new era of Cub Sport.

With this thrilling entry into their discography, the band have provided a promising peek into their next chapter. Written and produced with Simon Lam (Nearly Oratorio, Kllo), and mixed by Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Beyoncé, Childish Gambino) Nelson says of the single: «I‘ve always felt like the songs that people can cry to are important but I think being able to celebrate and move is equally important and that’s kind of where I’m at right now».

There are few trajectories in Australian music more remarkable than that of Cub Sport. Since they emerged as a promising young indie band in the early-2010s, the Meanjin (Brisbane) four-piece, comprised of Tim Nelson, Sam Netterfield, Zoe Davis and Dan Puusaari, have become known for their powerful, must-see live show and their ardent fanbase, as well as ARIA Platinum-and Gold-certified singles like «Come On Mess Me Up», «Chasin» and «Sometimes».

Boasting over 200 million streams and an ARIA #2 album to their name (2020’s Like Nirvana#1 Vinyl Sales chart#1 Australian Albums chart) Cub Sport have achieved some of the highest possible honours in Australian music, performing at the 2020 AFL Grand Final and placing in triple j’s Hottest 100 five times. Their music, which is self-produced and blends pop classicism with experimental and electronic elements, has been praised by the likes of The GuardianBBC Radio 1Rolling StoneBillboardi-DViceGay TimesThe FADER and countless others.

I’ve proudly added my only sport, Cub Sport, new single «Always Got The Love» to my playlist ( like it, so you don’t miss out on great music).
